Nice effort Rob. The Gasparilla 15k was in Tampa this morning. I miss those old races.

Thanks Bret...I should clarify, wasn't exactly a "jog" on the way out. More like my fastest comfortable pace.

That's some pretty impressive jogging!

Well done, Rob. I always enjoy reading reports for this series. I don't see too many race series like this, but we had a similar one in Indiana and it was really important to my running.
